Ciara enjoys a day at the Beach

Ciara is a party girl. But not the kind that dances on tables and comes out of a club looking like Sloppy Sandy. She just knows how to have fun -- on the sober tip -- wherever she goes. The R&B songstress, whose coquettish vocals sound loudly on 'Ride,' a single featured on her 2010 album, 'Basic Instinct,' is taking her brand of merriment to cities across the U.S. as part of the Station Invasion Concert tour, presented by Radio Maliboom Boom.

She kicked off the event Saturday (July 16) in Miami, where she's decided to unwind for a few days. "We're gonna jet ski-it up, have fun on the beach, lay back and lay in the sun and just have a really fun, girls time," she tells the BoomBox. While her fans and critics may be getting impatient, waiting on a new song to hit the airwaves, the Atlanta native promises she has a wealth of "things" to share when the time is right. Like any global force, the dance machine that she is deserves some time off occasionally.

Well, you know what, I'll just say this: I've been vibing and really having a fun time by getting to see what's out there. I just have to say that I'm so excited about the things that are happening. There's a lot of fun stuff going on. Sooner or later I really will be able to tell my fans exactly what is happening. I know a lot of times I speak to my fans [via Twitter] like, "Today was so great," or "Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening right now." There's things I've been saying so I can't wait to share those things with my fans.

Tips For Making It Big in the Music Industry



Make A Quality Product
If the first time you hear your finished song and you have to convince yourself that its "OK" and you not jumping up and down with excitement, throw it out, yea that's right start over. If You can't convince yourself its the best song out how do you expect to make someone else believe it is. You are always going to be your biggest critic.

Get Heard
There's no simple solution to this basically exhaust every avenue possible. Shows at local clubs, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, the many music dedicated web communities, and even passing your cd out on the street. If you actually have the talent or even something catchy SOMEONE will notice and it wont be long until people come looking for you instead of the other way around.
Representation
Once you've created a decent buzz get legal and professional representation to further your own professional growth. Without it chances of getting taken advantage of are higher. Plus most labels don't accept unsolicited material (content not negotiated with reputable manager). ALWAYS record any monetary transactions and have it signed by both parties.
Presentation
Make sure all CD's have a label and look professional (first impression is everything). Make a press kit containing bio, events, and anything else possible to present yourself in an enticing manner in the labels eyes.

Promote
Keep promoting just as before but now start your demo submissions to major record labels. Just a quick search on Google you can find the address, emails, and even phone numbers to some of the best labels.
Don't be modest, its your JOB to convince everyone the NEED to listen to you. If you don't have the persistence and backbone to take denial then this is not for you. Keep your fans up to date if all they hear is the same thing all the time they will lose interest so keep your content fresh without giving them too much. You want to have songs on reserve to show a variety and to keep your audience be willing to pay for more.

ALWAYS READ
Have Someone that understands the legal terms on any contract to aid you in the negotiation. Most standard contracts have so many loop holes it can screw you in the end.
Remember: Any tips given here all depend on YOUR work ethic there is no miracle way to get signed it takes hard work and determination as well.
Hope this helps!

As hip hop music progressed over the years, a style of music from the south introduced itself. It grew to be known as dirty south. Many rappers from the south started to get a lot of exposure for the type of music they were presenting to the music industry. Artist like Outkast, David Banner, Goodie Mob and many others where getting very popular with the new south sound.

What should this mean to you as an artist trying to blow up in today's music industry? For one, even if you don't like that style of music, you will have to recognize that it currently runs the music airwaves. As an artist you need to record to at least two dirty south beats and put yourself in a place to get some exposure. One thing that will never change about the music business is, what ever is popular all the top artist try to incorporate into their music.
Many artist have used what was popular to get them out on to the big stage and then decided to go with whats in their heart. We seen this with pink. When she first came out she was an R&B artist doing R&B music. She did the pop thing and built a following and then went to her label after wards and told them that she no longer wanted to do pop music but alternative music. As a result she blew up even more.

As an artist trying to get out in the music business, you should never look down on any other style of music to stay true to what you believe. Sometimes it will take you bending your own rules and doing the popular thing to get noticed. If all you hear on the radio today are down south artist using the southern sound, then maybe you should get a producer to make a track for you and consider the possibilities of having success that way.
